‘Jest’

Many a true word
Is said in jest
Deny it, you may
But too much you protest
Don’t think me incapable
Of ascertaining your true intention
I can feel the vibration
Of what you failed to mention
Transmuted did it to me
The true meaning of your words
The humour you tried to conceal it with
Fell on ‘deaf’ ears
Just letting you know
That I received the ‘real’ message
Make of that what you will
Just don’t forget it
